Over Head Garage Doors

Besides the walk-in doors, wide garage doors are also crucial for the various facility types. Considering the design specification of the metal building garage doors, you have two options: Sectional Door Style and Cylinder Drum Style Door.

Selection of a specific garage door design depends on your functional requirements, building design, and the facility's aesthetic factor. For aesthetic purposes, you have two different door frame options available. You can choose a simple rectangular metal door frame or a Dutch style one.

However, garage doors for prefab steel structures come in different designs and configurations. Here are some standard designs of prefab metal building garage doors explained below you can consider for your building project.

Metal Roll-Up Doors

Metal roll-up doors are the most common type for commercial, industrial, or residential facilities. Roll-up garage doors consist of small panels that roll up over the door frame in a horizontal column, like roll-up curtains on the windows.

In terms of installation and size specifications, metal roll-up garage doors are the most efficient ones. For the garage door, you have multiple material options available. But steel sheets are the most effective choice for garage roll-up doors. There is no need for intense maintenance for the roll-up metal garage door. There is also the possibility of automation with a roll-up metal garage door where you can connect with a chain hoist system with a stepper motor.

Sectional Doors

In the design specifications, sectional metal garage doors are almost similar to roll-up garage doors. The only difference between sectional and roll-up garage doors is the width of the panels. In sectional doors, the panel width is slightly more than the roll-up garage doors.

The application of sectional garage doors is common in residential garages. Insulating the garage door also makes it possible to obtain better temperature handling. But there are some limitations of sectional doors. These doors require more space and effort to operate.
